Another duck type shot I may look at is going off the right side of the 13 with LHE and go 2 rails with CB sticking the CB in the huge catcher's mitt in the stack.
If the 13 laid right for going two-rails to the stack, that would be the shot -- but it looks to me that you would have to hit the 13 too thick, and inadvertently send it into those balls, potentially causing a problem.

The thing about the two-rail shot on the 12 is that it's tough to accurately control the final landing of the cue ball. I mean a little cut to the left or right is a big change to where the cue ball goes. Whereas if you go off the 5 ball with a light carom, easy to execute, and it seems much easier to land the cue ball where it actually doubles up the 6 behind the 14. In fact the 3 ball probably bounces out and further clogs up your opponent's path to safety. I like the rub off the 5

Shooting the shot on the 12 ball is right up my alley and I can hit it with confidence. Following with Jojo, such as on this shot, in my opinion is just as valuable as the ability to draw the ball. Maybe even more. Comments?

My first outlook was to two rail the 12-ball for all the same reasons presented by "Island Drive." However, I had a contrary outlook after reading over the other posts of how the shot could be executed. Consequently, I too would shoot the cue ball off the 5-ball because of the simplicity in the execution of the shot.

Yes, I like coming off the 5ball as well. Positioning the cue ball in one of two places would suffice, either catty-corner to your pocket..like you mentioned, or past the side pocket close to the rail. Shooting off the 12ball IMO is not as strong because it removes a potential blocker and may open up a lane for your opponent to utilize and maneuver the cue ball to escape, plus it takes away an interfering ball that may preclude your opponent in pocketing the 11ball at a later time.

Couple of options. You can go off the five and leave him long or you can two rail the twelve to your side and leave him long.

Two rail intentional scratch into the four/nine. Coming up short is OK too. Just nuzzle those two balls and you are in the drivers seat.

How about going into the 3 and nestling cb up against the 5 whereas it does not leave a shot to see the 8 or the 6?
A touch shot with big rewards, IMO. Whitey
